Going to be a cold one.

Bundle up GSXR. It's going to be a long cold dark and nasty winter. Man up and power through it. Put some chains on those GSXR tires and ride on. Fuck snow and ice. Gloves? What do I look like a pussy? LET'S GO! GET SOME!

If you need me I will be in my strawberry shortcake snuggie sitting right next to the fire praying for spring.

Ya. I got the gsxr running and went down on it the first ride. Front tire locked up on me. Going to wait to spring to fix it again

Next spring as in the season. I think I had a leak in the brake line and somehow the brake compressed and locked up. Thankfully ground was wet and tire washed out.

And as far as two wheel church it was mud calling me out.

The union woodshop is likely to be jammed at noon. I can call and ask them how long their typical wait times are at noon on Sundays

So, we have to think about this a bit.

Assuming we sit down to lunch at noon. Figure an hour and a half for lunch, done at 130.

Its about an hour by M15 to Birch Run (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/18+S+Main+St,+Clarkston,+MI+48346/11600+N+Beyer+Rd,+Birch+Run,+MI+48415/@42.9958838,-83.8807969,10z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x8824975e54cd07 c9:0xcc52aedad86df914!2m2!1d-83.4188626!2d42.7354327!1m5!1m1!1s0x882392155db356 95:0xc3dc145129df03b9!2m2!1d-83.7835139!2d43.2560564!5i2) (An hour and ten via M24 (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/18+S+Main+St,+Clarkston,+MI+48346/11600+N+Beyer+Rd,+Birch+Run,+MI+48415/@42.9958838,-83.881371,10z/data=!4m17!4m16!1m5!1m1!1s0x8824975e54cd07c9:0xcc5 2aedad86df914!2m2!1d-83.4188626!2d42.7354327!1m5!1m1!1s0x882392155db356 95:0xc3dc145129df03b9!2m2!1d-83.7835139!2d43.2560564!2m1!1b1!3e0!5i1)) - optimistically 230 arrival. Then the DR people have probably a couple hours back down. (looks like 1:45 via I75 on google maps)

Thoughts?

Gas Man

It will take the DR an hour to get to Holly... from there it's another hour to birch run staying off the e-way...

The River Rock place opens at 12.

I hooked up with Kosher 1/4 to 12 at river rock. we ran across to M 15 and then north to Birch Run Rd. we traveled east to Birch Run and walked around the Expo Center swap meet. Didn't swap anything or meet anyone. we stopped for a sandwich followed by a quick run down I 75 toward home. I got over 100 miles in today. Yes it was a bit on the cool side.
